Veles u psalmu
Der Slawische Gott Veles in einem Psalm

Radoslav Katičić



Psalm 22, 1-2 and 4 sings about Jahve, the God, who cares about the believer as the shepherd cares about his lamb. In connection with this, the Psalm sings about the grazing meadow filled with the green grass, about the water and resting on the water, about the valley that is overshadowed by death. All these are the motifs that are connected with Veles, the Slavic god of cattle. On the basis of available comparative material, the question about the origin of this complex of motifs could not be answered.
